Question 5 – Historical New York Times 1851 – 2010The old newspaper articles are useful for serious research because they provide the researchers with the first-hand account of the past events, politics, and societies thus acting reference materials.

Question 6 – Todays New York Times The editorial interesting to me is titled Talking About Peace, When Despots Don’t Care written by Serge Schmemann on May 28, 2015. It talks about the unsuccessful attempts to bring peace between the two Korean nations, North and South. It also discusses the human rights abuse and nuclear activities by North Korea despite international pressures. Schmemann applauds the activists like Gloria Steinem, who campaign for peace, reconciliation as well as defending human rights. However, the writer concedes that peace cannot be attained in the wake of unwillingness by the perpetrators of dictatorship.
